What is Virtual Reality (VR)?

Immotion's Undersea Explorer VR experiences are immersive adventures that virtually submerge guests in artificial environments. Stunning high-definition films narrated by explorers, scientists and conservationists transport viewers to swim with giants of the sea. Headsets allow for 360-degree viewing while the synced motion-platform completes the illusion; audiences will feel themselves diving beneath waves, surfacing from the depths and soaring along coastlines. It is a virtual adventure like no other!
